End of the Road (5:50)

Cover of Cooleyhighharmony

From Cooleyhighharmony and 76 other releases

“End of the Road” is a 1992 Grammy Award-winning, number-one song recorded in May 1992 by Boyz II Men for the Motown label. It is Boyz II Men’s most successful single and was written and produced by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Daryl Simmons.

Originally recorded as a soundtrack song for the Eddie Murphy motion picture Boomerang, the song (themed about a breakup where the man really doesn’t want the woman to go) topped the charts from August 15 through November 7, 1992, setting a record for most weeks at number one with 13 weeks, beating Elvis Presley’s 11-week hold with “Hound Dog” / “Don’t Be Cruel”. Presley’s record had stood 36 years.

However, two weeks after “End of the Road” left the top spot, Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” reached number one, and remained there 14 weeks, one week longer than “End of the Road”. Boyz II Men’s new record stood only 17 weeks. The group’s next single (“I’ll Make Love to You”), however, would tie Houston’s record, and 1995’s Boyz II Men/Mariah Carey collaboration “One Sweet Day” would break it, logging 16 consecutive weeks.

    This is a throw back to the music of my teens in the 70's, that time period was one of the greatest in music history and these guys would have fit right in with the all time greats. THEY DON'T MAKE MUSIC LIKE THIS ANYMORE, THEY MAKE CRAP NOW !!!!!!!!!!!
